Marika Koroibete at his brutal best as he channels his inner Jonah

Wallabies winger Marika Koroibete produced a stunning try assist, helping the Panasonic Wild Knights reach the Japan Rugby League One final.

In a tense semi-final against the Canon Eagles, Koroibete shone, gaining over 60 running metres, beating four defenders and winning a turnover.

The Robbie Deans-led Knights shot into a 5-0 lead thanks to a Koki Takeyama try and shortly after Eagles’ fly-half Yu Tamura cut their lead with a penalty did the Wallabies flyer respond with a sublime piece of play.

Marika Koroibete’s try assist

Attack just inside Canon’s half, fullback Takeyama managed to evade a few tacklers before shifting the ball on to Dylan Riley. The centre liked up with flanker Lachlan Boshier and Koroibete ran a smart support line looping around to get the ball from his back-rower.

From there, Koroibete epically ramaged over Eagle’s fullback Jumpei Ogura, much like Jonah Lomu running over Mike Catt in 1995.

He shrugged off another attempted tackle and managed to ride the third tackle while offloading to Jack Cornelsen to score.

A later penalty from Matsuda put the Knights up 13-3 at half-time.

The ridiculous Rugby World Cup records that Jonah Lomu still holds

Canon started the second half brightly with Sione Halasili crossing for a try and they would take the lead in the 52nd minute with Tamura converting Masayoshi Takezawa’s try.

But the Eagles failed to see the game out with Springboks centre Damian de Allende scoring from short-range for Panasonic as they eked out a narrow 20-17 victory.

The Knights head into the final with the opportunity to claim their sixth Japanese title and will face the victors of the other semi-final between Toshiba Brave Lupus and Suntory Sungoliath.

Panasonic have been unstoppable this season, winning all 16 of their regular season matches, scoring a remarkable 106 tries.
